Live in the country or some obscure place? This is going to hurt. Virgin have just announed that they will be trialing 200MB per second Broadband. Yes 200. That will download a gig in a touch over 5 seconds and the average DVD in less than minute!

100 users in Kent (toffs) will have the access to the new speeds, which is believed to be among the fastest in the world. They will have set tasks to do such as test 1080p high definition TV and 3DTV (it’s a hard life).

Although not quite the fastest, Japan has a line that runs at just under a gig a second, for the technology being used (Docsis 3) it is the fastest worldwide.
